Are you a carer? Are you looking after someone with dementia? Do you have a diagnosis of dementia yourself?
Next week is dementia action week and if you are looking for some advice or guidance, then there are a number of workshops accessible online specifically designed to give you support run by Forward Carers in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society.
Dementia Research at the Alzheimer’s Society states that:
- 3 per cent of people with dementia are from BAME communities – around 25,000 people. This number is expected to double by 2026 with the steepest increase expected in South Asian communities.
- Research suggests BAME communities often face delays in dementia diagnosis and barriers in accessing services.
Join us next week for a series of workshops online. Sessions need to be pre- booked.
